Good Magazine on Food Insecurity
Check out the full infographic from Good Magazine on food insecurity here.
Sometimes the best way to understand facts is through an infographic. This week, Good Magazine released a helpful infographic on the food insecurity stats that were released by the U.S. Census Bureau last month. Check out the infographic here.
While folks will find different aspects of the infographic helpful to them, I was struck by who is most affected by food insecurity in the United States. Namely, female mothers without a spouse are 35 percent of those struggling with food insecurity, and African American (25 percent) and Hispanic (26 percent) households are also disproportionately affected by food insecurity. With more than 17 million people declaring themselves food insecure during 2010, now is the time to stay informed on how we can act to make sure these numbers change in the coming years.
